Undeclared Israeli Nuclear Weapons: CIA Knew In 1974 That Israel Had Nuclear Weapons
Commentary and Title change by Kevin Hayden
Much attention has been placed on Iran and their supposed nuclear weapons program by the United States and Israel.
What isn’t talked about on a regular basis in the corporate controlled media is the fact that Israel has an illegal, undeclared nuclear arsenal. While many are already aware of the facts regarding the Israeli Nuclear Program, there is an absurd amount of people who still pretend Israel is a sitting duck surrounded by powerful enemies.
This is a topic that I have brought up time and time again. Israel is not a helpless victim. They are a nuclear-armed country with financial backing from the United States. In fact, they receive more financial and military aid from the United States than any other country in the world. And they have nukes. And Israel is not a signatory on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
So, when Israel whines and cries about Iran gaining nuclear capability, I have ZERO sympathy for them. Or anyone else for that matter. Iran is a sovereign nation, like it or not, and if Israel, the United States, India, Pakistan, France, the UK, China, etc can have nuclear capability, why can Iran not? You want to talk about liberty issues? Fairness? Sovereign means just that; sovereign. And this policy of pre-emptively striking countries is absurd and not in line with the Rule of Law, both technically and morally. Iran is years and years away from having a refined weapon of mass destruction and until that day comes; until they have the intention and capability, you can’t undermine their sovereignty.
When the designers and engineers of the first atomic weapon described it as “opening Pandora’s box,” they were correct. We were the first to design and use one and now have to constantly play this juggling act and make sure only certain others acquire the technology and material. We made this bed and now we get to lie in it. Sadly, we often DO “lie” about weapons of mass destruction, other nations’ intentions and justify pillaging a country for its resources as “protective, pre-emptive kinetic action, limited in scope and duration.”
Granted, this is my non-interventionist, peaceful-while-still-being-protective opinion.
The reality is that our government knew, as far back as 1974, that Israel most likely possessed nuclear weapons. In 2008 the National Security Archive released a once classified CIA document that indicated that Israel already had a stockpile of nuclear weapons in 1974....Continue ReadingView Comments (1)
